Old certainties are being replaced by a tangle of choices and mind-numbing changes. The future overtakes every area of our lives with intense social change. Technology is leading us into cyberspace. Electronic media threaten to turn books into historical artifacts. Postmodernism is eroding the basic idea of truth. The political world oscillates between imperialism and tribalism. Spiritual hunger is growing -- but new generations reject Christian answers for alternative spiritualities.RetroFuture explores the bewildering complexity of life today and the responses it demands from us. How do we gain a foothold in this new cultural landscape? Where can we find the personal and social resources to outfit our journey into the future? How can we take with us the very best of past experience? Culture demands that we reroute. Survival demands that we reroot.No intelligent Christian leader can avoid these issues. And for those who want to understand how the new generations are receiving -- or rejecting -- the gospel, this book is essential reading. Vibrant and engaging, Gerard Kelly proves himself an insightful observer of postmodern culture and a compelling guide who dares to step forward to embrace the new and emerging opportunities for Christian life and witness.
